             Bug #: 118854
        Issue Type: DEFECT
           Summary: Draw crashes on open when Navigator is docked and the
                    file being opened contains a linked image
    Classification: Application
           Product: Drawing
           Version: OOo 3.3
          Platform: PC
        OS/Version: Windows 7
            Status: UNCONFIRMED
          Severity: major
          Priority: P5
         Component: ui
        AssignedTo: graphicsneedsconfirm@openoffice.org
        ReportedBy: spam1@norring.dk
                CC: ooo-issues@incubator.apache.org


Draw crashes when the Navigator windows is docked and you open an existing
document that contains an linked image. 

1. Create a new empty Draw document
2. Open the Navigator (F5) and dock it to the right side
3. Use menu Insert->Picture->From file... and select a PNG file (I created a
small image in MS-paint for this purpose). Make sure "Link" is ticked before
you press Open.
4. Save the document.
5. Close Draw and reopen the file (using File->Reload produces the same
result). Note: I do not have Quickstarter or any other OpenOffice program
running.
6. Upon opening the file, Draw will show for a short time and just close
without any errors.
7. The Recovery screen only shows up sometimes (in the beginning when I
discovered the bug it showed up all the time)

To fix this, simply start Draw (empty document) undock or hide the Navigator
window (F5) and reopen the troubled document. It should open without problems.

My suggestions would be that the bug is a result of linked images being loading
asynchronous and the Navigator initializes before the images are completely
loaded (I have no insight in the OpenOffice code, so just a suggestion).

The same issue is NOT observed in Writer.
